Pinoy Style Chicken Curry

Last night, I was thinking  again of what to cook for the next day and I remember a good friend of mine sent me a bottle of curry powder from Manila as requested.  With chicken curry on my mind, I visited some sites for the recipe and at least I found one of which I can consider giving a try as it seemed truly  delectable and the best thing is  all ingredients are available in my kitchen cupboard.  This was my first time to cook the dish that I did  follow what is in the recipe.

Going through the recipe,  indeed  Pinoy Style Chicken Curry is a variation of the “Ginataang Manok” (chicken cooked in coconut milk). Only additional vegetables were added and the taste was spiced-up to increase flavor.  And now that I’ve tried the dish by myself   I must say that the recipe is truly a wonderful dish that is worth trying. Thanks to the one who had shared his recipe, I’ll not be making any adjustment on it as for me it’s perfectly alright.
